Youth Acres is a 70.2 acre piece of land that sits on Canton Lake. We offer a variety of outdoors options for our youth of all ages including cub scouts, girl scouts, boy scouts, church groups and more. Come out and enjoy camping, hiking, fishing, play games, or just spend the day outside. Lots of space for your youth to run free and get some fresh air and exercise. Covered pavilions are located throughout Youth Acres with picnic tables for you to enjoy.
